The 2022 Edison Awards Young Edison Challenge is open for submissions. Students are invited to showcase their creativity by creating a new, innovative product or service and developing a plan to market it.

The top three student innovations will be named “Young Edison” Student Winners. Each of the three winners will receive a trip to the 2022 Edison Awards in Fort Myers, Florida, April 20-22, 2022.

Students must submit their Young Edison Challenge projects by February 11, 2022, Thomas Edison’s birthday. The entries will be judged by a jury of expert reviewers and educators. Winners will be announced on March 15, 2022.

In addition to receiving a trip to the 2022 Edison Awards, winners will be featured on the Edison Awards website and through Edison Awards social media channels.
